Bollywood star Aamir Khan on Saturday urged Anna Hazare to end his fast in support of a strong anti-corruption legislation, saying the 74-year-old was needed for future battles against graft.

"I am concerned (about his health). I am sure all of you are also worried about Anna's health," the actor told the thousands gathered at the Ramlila ground in New Delhi.

"I feel this struggle will go on for a long time. We need Anna for this struggle," he added, speaking from the stage where Hazare was seated. "My request to him: please end this fast."

Before concluding his speech, Aamir turned to Hazare and said: "Please consider my request seriously."

The actor also pledged his support to the Jan Lokpal Bill framed by Hazare and his team.

"It is natural that parliament will alone pass it... The people of India are looking at their MPs..."
